Duchess Kate: A year since the Royal Wedding ….How to create her makeup look!

As it’s a year on from the fairy-tale wedding of Kate and Will, I wanted to look back at Kate’s wedding makeup and here are just a few of my favorite pictures.

As I look back at the blushing bride, we see that she has not changed her makeup style, but then why change something that works!

If you want to recreate her look here are some of my favourite products and tips used to highlight her key features:

Brows – If you are dark haired like Kate I would recommend filling in any light brow hairs with an angle brush and an eye shadow powder, gently sweeping the powder over the hairs will give you a subtle look, for a stronger look like Kate’s brush the powder over the skin too, try Bobbi Brown Brow Kit.

Eyes – Kate doesn’t go anywhere without that black liner! She uses it all round the eye for intensity. If you are going to try this look, then you want something long lasting and smudge resistant, I suggest a gel liner, either Bobbi Brow black ink or for a budget liner try Maybelline’s black gel liner, it even comes with a little brush! Mascara is a must for this look, try Lancôme’s Definicils for more of a day look and Dior Blackout to transform to more of a night look.

Cheeks and Lips – Finish the look by adding some blush to the apples of the cheeks with a soft round blusher brush using circular motions. Try Mac powder blush in Frankly Scarlett or for more of a shimmer try Chanel in 55 In Love. With Kate focusing on her eyes, keep lips simple with a nude lipstick, with a hint of pink, rumour has it that the Bobbi Brown Sandwashed Pink lip colour has long been a favourite of The Duchess, followed by a layer of Crystal lip gloss.

Enjoy creating this look 🙂
